Just click on the links below to place a wager with Planet Sport Bet.

Donny Boy (11.40 Newcastle)

Our Jet (12.50 Warwick)

Paso Doble (13.00 Taunton)

The Glancing Queen (2.00 Newcastle)

Jeremy Pass (14.10 Taunton)

Crystal Glory (2.50 Newcastle) 

Planet Sport starts at Warwick with Dan Skelton looking to fly at his local track. This one could be ready for take off.

12.50 Warwick - Our Jet

Team Skelton were on fire on Tuesday with a Uttoxeter treble and can take that form to local track Warwick.

Our Jet was a decent last time out second at Aintree, only being beaten three quarters of a length by Henry Daly's Hillcrest.

That Aintree hurdle performance saw the Jet Away gelding stay on in Merseyside so the step up to two miles, five furlongs should be well within range.

Kim Bailey's Kyntara is well regarded and won his Warwick bumper by 17 lengths and could do better than a last time out third at Lingfield.

2.00 Warwick- The Glancing Queen

Another that's well regarded at her stable, The Glancing Queen has contested Grade 1's, finishing third in the Challow Hurdle in 2020.

The Glancing Queen also has course form to her name, taking a mares' novices' hurdle at Warwick that same year.

An obviously fierce challenge awakes with Henry De Bromhead sending Kapard over for Ireland but Alan King's Queen can prove her prowess.

11.40 Newcastle - Donny Boy

Scottish trainer Neil Alexander sends Donny Boy to Newcastle on the back of a facile 14 length win at Kelso.

The five-year-old couldn't have been more impressive, leaving the Donald Whillans trained Nights In Venice for dust.

Conor O'Farrell retains the ride with Alexander looking to push Donny Boy on for some progression.

Chris Grant's Fearless Action is going the right way and can push Donny Boy to the line.

2.50 Newcastle - Crystal Glory

This Irish point-to-point winner made a winning start in the UK with a hard-fought win at Hexham on bonfire night.

The Fame and Glory gelding ran on well and had something in reserve so the extra couple of furlongs at Hexham should suit.

Top Northern jockey Brian Hughes gets the leg up with Crystal Glory looking a clear cut chance.

Captain Quint is also a Hexham winner for Rose Dobbin and can push Crystal Glory close.

13.00 Taunton - Paso Doble

This well bred Dawn Approach gelding was formerly in the hands of master Irish trainer Jim Bolger and won a couple of nice races in the Emerald Isle.

A decent Kempton novice hurdle win came after the switch to Nicholls and Paso Doble only found one too good at the Surrey track last time out.

That second came with a couple of mistakes so with a clean round of jumping, Paso Doble can do better for West Country god Nicholls in his own backyard.

Another French import, Huelgoat can outperform his last time out seventh at the track and is bred to do progress over time.

14.10 Taunton - Jeremy Pass

Paul Nicholls has a chance of at least a double at Taunton and Jeremy Pass can form one of those wins.

The six-year-old hasn't been out of the top two in any of his last four runs.

A four lengths win at Ascot topped off his last race at Ascot over three miles in November.

Harry Cobden takes the reins and Planet Sport won't be passing on this one

Evan Williams' Winds Of Fire is another consistent, last time out winner and has the potential to turn up the heat on Jeremy Pass.
